Project Description

Ostia Antica: the treasures of Imperial Rome

A few miles from Rome lies Ostia Antica, one of the most emblematic archaeological sites of ancient Rome and once commercial center of the Empire.
The ancient name of the city is “Ostia Tiberina”, or “Porta del Tevere”, after the legend of Romulus and Remus, found and suckled by the she-wolf.
Excavations in the area of Ostia Antica began in the 18th century and to this day it is the third most visited archaeological site in Italy, mainly due to extraordinary ancient masterpieces recently brought to light in new and important areas just discovered.
Along with Herculaneum and Pompeii, its remains are the best example in the world of a Roman city able to educate tourists and visitors about life in Rome, the birth and decline of its millenary Empire.
